Lennikov vs. Canada….

FORMER KGB AGENT A GOOD CONTRIBUTOR TO CANADIAN SOCIETY

Canada lets thousands of people into the country and of those people the vast majority are unemployable except for in the case of former KGB spy, Mikhail Lennikov who nows lives on the sunshine coast, the west coast of Canada.
This week the Lennikovs’ traveled to Ottawa in the hopes of meeting federal immigration minister Jason Kenney, but Jason was no where to be found and refused to meet the subject of his disapproval.
Peter Julian, another federal MP attempted to have Peter Van Loan sit down with Mr Lennikov but Mr Van Loan was too busy doing things that ministers do…like reading the comics which seems to be about the intellectual level of the average elected CON.
Lennikov and his family have resided in Canada for many years since 1997 I beleive. He was granted entry into Canada, and was forthright in his dealings with the Canadian government from the onset, identifying himself as a former agent for the Russian spy service, the KGB. The government granted him residency as well as his children. His children attend schools in BC and are well liked by their peers. His son Dimitri is a well organized student that is very involved in student activities. The Lennikovs’ have been threatened with death and imprisonment by the KGB for refusing to return to Russia, and for denouncing the KGB which he has done in a most public manner.
The KGB does not take absentia lightly and have routinely executed former spies at the street level. The Lennikovs’ face this same fate if and when they are returned to their former homeland.
A facebook group has been created to assist the family during this time. Their adopted community of Burnaby has mobilized in order to facilitate the family no matter what happens. Their community support is massive and more than 97% of the community of Burnaby that were polled voted that they would like the family to remain in Canada. Remember, we are all a nation of immigrants.
If you would like to join the facebook group in support of these people you may do so here…

And here are some sample letters that you can all send out to your MP’s.(like those brain dead farts would ever read anyways, but what the hell send them to them…they need more reading materials)

Hon. James Moore, PC MP
Minister of Canadian Heritage &
Regional Minister for Metro Vancouver
House of Commons
OTTAWA K1A 0A6

Dear Mr. Moore,
My name is __________________ and I am from _________, B.C. I am writing in regard to the unusual Lennikov immigration case urging you to stand up for this state-less family, who have been here for 11 years, on “humanitarian and compassionate” grounds.

On February 24, 2009 the Public Safety Minister refused Mr. Lennikov’s application for special relief pursuant to section 34 (2) of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act. At this point the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) can remove the three-person family (Mikhail, his wife Irina and 17-year old son, Dmitri) within an arbitrary two-four week time frame, despite the fact that young Dmitri Lennikov is only four months away from high school graduation. In an interview on national television on Friday, February 27, 2009 from Toronto, Mr. Van Loan stated that he had done his duty under the statutes for which he has responsibility, but that the Immigration Minister has jurisdiction otherwise.

On the same day last week that Hon. Peter Van Loan made his decision, Mrs. Lennikov was encouraged by a high-ranking Ottawa official from the Department of Citizenship and Immigration to apply for Permanent Residence on humanitarian and compassionate considerations, and Mr. Lennikov was recommended to apply for a Temporary Resident Permit. These applications will be of no use if permission to stay in Canada is granted to Mr. Lennikov and his family after the CBSA has deported them back to Russia. You should know that in such event their fate without passports and stigmatized by the publicity their unique story has received because of the past KGB connection of Mr. Lennikov would be the harshest of treatment, and worse.

As a Canadian citizen (and a voter), I demand that deportation of the Lennikov family be postponed until the Department of Citizenship and Immigration has evaluated their applications for Permanent Residence on humanitarian and compassionate grounds for Irina Lennikov and for Dmitri Lennikov, and a Temporary Resident Permit for Mikhail Lennikov.

Furthermore, Mr. Moore, I call upon you to demonstrate humanity and compassion to give priority to this matter in urging your colleague, the Minister of Immigration, to end their ordeal and allow these good people to remain in Canada.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Dear Mr. Kenney,

These applications will be of no use if you grant permission to stay in Canada to Mr. Lennikov and his family after the CBSA has deported them back to Russia. You should know that if you do not intervene now – with humanity and compassion – their fate without passports and stigmatized by the publicity their unique story has received because of the past KGB connection of Mr. Lennikov would be the harshest of treatment, and likely worse.

As a Canadian citizen (and a voter), I demand that deportation of the Lennikov family be postponed until you have evaluated their applications for Permanent Residence on humanitarian and compassionate grounds for Irina Lennikov and for Dmitri Lennikov, and a Temporary Resident Permit for Mikhail Lennikov. I appeal to you to demonstrate humanity and compassion in ending their ordeal and allow these good people to remain in Canada.
